Popular Network Monitor Tool Provider Throws Down the Gauntlet

NetLatency Changes Name to PathSolutions, Challenges Competitors to Go Head-to-Head

January 16, 2007 Santa Clara, Calif. ― A challenge has been issued by the CEO of PathSolutions (http://www.pathsolutions.com), the company formerly known in the network monitoring industry as NetLatency.

“We’re throwing down the gauntlet and challenging our competitors to see who can cut through the network cloud the fastest,” said CEO Scott Brown. “There’s been a lot of hype lately about slashing Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) in business-critical, converged networks. Our customers are amazed at how quickly we get them from installation to problem isolation. We’re so confident that our product, SwitchMonitor, will outperform our competitors’ products by a factor of 2 to 1, that we’ll take on any of our competitors in an installation-to-isolation scenario.”

PathSolutions’ SwitchMonitor is an SNMP-based network monitoring solution designed by a network engineer for network engineers. It rapidly isolates problems in converged networks that support business-critical, performance-sensitive applications such as VoIP, IPTV, storage area networks, teleconferencing systems, and networked databases.

“All system administrators have the same kind of headaches and issues,” said Superior Industries MIS Manager Dave Schmidgall, a PathSolutions customer. “SwitchMonitor sells itself to anyone with several years in the industry — it blows the door back open.”

A 15-day free demo of PathSolutions’ SwitchMonitor network monitoring software is available to qualified network engineers. Visit the PathSolutions web site at http://www.pathsolutions.com/ for details.
